About this Tour


Visit the oldest city of the New World and Christopher Columbus’ first permanent settlement after his discovery of the Americas. Visit the capital city of Santo Domingo, and marvel at its architectural, historical and cultural wonders.

We invite you to share and learn 500 years of history. You will have wonderful photo opportunities, as your guide points out all the places of interest, giving you interesting facts about such an old city!

Your first stop will take you to the "The Three Eyes" (Cueva de los Tres Ojos) which is a collapsed cave featuring three amazing lagoons located on the outskirts of Santo Domingo. It was formed centuries ago when some underground caves collapsed, forming a bowl-shaped depression. 

You will then enjoy panoramic views of the Columbus Lighthouse, built in 1992 on the site of Admiral Christopher Columbus’ remains.

Our tour guide also take you to the colonial zone which was declared World Heritage by the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). History is found all throughout this centuries-old capital city.

The Colonial Zone was founded back in 1498. In this section of the city you will visit the oldest cathedral in America, the Columbus museum “Alcazar de Colon” and the National Pantheon,a museum with the tombs of great important figures of Dominican history which names are engraved in marble. You can also enjoy a nice walk with your tour guide through "Calle Las Damas" which is the oldest street in the Americas.

Lunch and entrances to monuments are included!

To round out your tour, you will also have free time for shopping at the Mercado Modelo which holds the city’s largest selection of Dominican souvenirs and is a true festival of scents and colors! This is a dominican market where the bargains are endless and bartering is fun.

With our tour to Santo Domingo, you’ll experience Santo Domingo’s rich history and the daily life of everyday Dominican in their capital city of more than 3 million inhabitants. 

Come and get captured by the history and grace of the oldest city in The New World.
